Yesterday Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced SPEC CPU 2017 benchmark scores (https://spec.org/cpu2017/results/ ) using AMD’s EPYC processor and the AOCC compiler (http://developer.amd.com/amd-aocc/ ). AOCC is based on LLVM 4.0.0 and was released in May 2017. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first instance of an LLVM-based compiler being used to report SPEC CPU scores. The scores look very competitive. In fact, the FP rate score holds the leadership position at present among comparable 2P systems. We would like to use this opportunity to thank the global LLVM community and hope to continue our fruitful collaboration.
